PUPDATE! MEET THE TEAM: Carly Newman, General Manager, River North
PUPS Pet Club is grateful to have so many naturally optimistic, dedicated leaders within our team. One of those steadfast leaders is Carly Newman – The new General Manager at our River North Club!
Carly started working at the PUPS Pet Club in Lakeview in December of 2021. She was originally hired in a hybrid role as a Daycare Attendant and Member Service Representative. This allowed her the opportunity to learn about the company as well as get to know each pet-parent while also playing with and caring for the dogs within the daycare room.
She was initially interested in the position because, like most people who pursue employment at PUPS, she “loves dogs very much” so working with them sounded like a great experience. But she was also intrigued by the fact that there was growth potential within the company! Carly was excited to hear that PUPS would be opening new clubs within the Chicagoland area and wanted to be part of that evolution. Plus, she figured this would be a great chance for her to improve her natural leadership skills.
Carly is thrilled to be taking on the General Manager position in River North but there are several things that she’ll miss about the Lakeview Club. First and foremost, she loves that her Lakeview teammates are incredibly encouraging, understanding and supportive of one another. The energy between teammates in Lakeview is “contagious” and she hopes to build that commoroderdy within the River North Club too. However, she is super excited to get to know the River North members and dogs – especially doodles and cavapoos.
We’d like to congratulate Carly on starting her managerial journey at PUPS! We are confident that she will do an amazing job.
